Description

Building is a fine representation of the Moderne style most frequently used in public building projects of the 1930s. (NRHP Nomination Form)

The construction of this city hall created many jobs for the unemployed in Weatherford during the hard times of the Great Depression. Weatherford citizens passed a bond election to provide funds for a new city hall and fire station in 1933, and construction began immediately on this structure, built on land designated early in the century for city hall and fire department use. Dedication ceremonies for the new facility were held on January 16, 1934. The art deco brick structure features vertical corbelled pilasters and stone coping and inserts. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark -1987.

West Texas Chamber of Commerce file request for $10,000 with the PWA in Nov. 1933.
